The new MMO – WAKFU can play now! Wakfu Kamas can be available on SwagValt.com Now!
What is Wakfu?Wakfu is a turn-based tactical MMORPG and a television cartoon, under development by Ankama Studio and written in Java. It takes place in the same fantasy world as Dofus, 1000 years later.The open beta was released on April 27, 2011. For the North American region, it is being published by Square Enix, while Ankama Studio retains publishing rights for the rest of the world. Islands of Wakfu, a spinoff of the game, was released on March 30, 2011 for the Xbox Live Arcade.
Story:In the time of Dofus, an ogre named Ogrest managed to get all 6 Dofus eggs for the sake of
someone he loved. However, she was interested only in the eggs, and Ogrest killed her in a fit of rage.
Later realizing what he’d done, he climbed to a mountaintop and cried for 1000 years. This brings us
to the time of Wakfu. Now the “goal” is to defeat Ogrest, but, like Dofus, this is not necessary.
The fighting system is turn by turn like Dofus and Dofus Arena, inspired by Tactical RPG which will also be present in Wakfu. In Wakfu, players walk around with the screen following them scrolling (In Dofus, to move around, each, you walked onto a new screen).
One of the changes in Wakfu is the interaction with its environment, you have to try to preserve resources and monsters migrate around the map.
Players will be (at least partially) auto-managed: players will have to maintain the order, like milicians and governors. Some ranks will be accessible thanks to elections.
Each class has 25 spells: 3 elementary categories of 5 spells each, which change according to the class (fire, air, water or ground) and 10 support spells related to the class that doesn’t damage the opponent, such as moving spells or boosts. Each elementary spell will profit from one hundred levels of power. These spells will progress to the wire of their use by the players.
Bestiary:The most famous monsters of Dofus, like Tofus, Moskitos and Gobballs will be present in Wakfu too but after being completely re-examined with addition of subclasses. However the graphic designers at Ankama Games developed new creatures, like Phorreurs and the Grave-diggers. Smares (monster in form of samare) also made their appearance!
